OK which Pete Townsend?? Or should I ask WHO is Pete Townsend??

Larry

At this exact moment in time 8/9/01 12:27 AM, "Joe Maggiore"
<joema@...> made the profound statement:

All:

I found this interesting and thought I'd share it. It's an excerpt from MG
2001 Gaydon article found on the the MGCars.org.uk website:

Among the many visitors to MG 2001 was Pete Townsend who had just returned
from the 'Britain to Bosnia Challenge 2001' a fund raising trip. A chance
conversation in the pub and bet from a member of the Land-Rover club lead Pete
to agree to take his MGB along with twenty four Land-Rovers on a drive to
Bosnia and back. The money raised was in support of the Mines Awareness Group,
a charity dedicated to mine clearance in war zones. Pete's MGB completed the
trip without any problems despite two of the Land-Rovers failing to make it
back. Well done Pete.

Does any one have the directions to the brunch we had on the Chesapeake Canal
a few years ago? I think we went with the Triumph club.
Does anyone remember the trip at all? When was it?

First the violin story. This is 1973 MG Midget that was recently
restored
(always garaged since restoration) and then rear ended just days after a
fresh
engine rebuild and new clutch: The car was totaled by the insurance
company -
I have the Salvage title only. I did not have the heart to see it sent
to a
yard and rot away since everything was right on this car. Here's a
chance of a
lifetime to get all the restoration parts in one shot - I used NOS
whenever
possible and have all receipts to prove it. I have over $10,000 invested
into
this car. The car is driveable, but the unibody is bent slightly on the
trunk
floor and buckled behind the trunk - thus I must sell it as a parts car.
The
good news is that the rest of the car appears untouched. Here's a
PARTIAL list
of what has been done to the Midget in the past year: Passed PA
inspection
just a couple of months ago and is still current. Newly rebuilt engine
and
three-piece clutch - engine has 70+ lbs of pressure when starting and
was
driven for hours without a problem (remember it was JUST rebuilt - so I
haven't driven it for more than a weekend with the fresh rebuild). The
engine
never smoked, overheated or had serious problems even before the
rebuild.
Transmission is in excellent condition. New front Fenders, Hood, quarter
panel, fan shroud - any rust (though minor) repaired correctly -
underside of
car was fine before restoration and did not need any repair. Rebuilt SU
carburetors and new SU fuel pump. Gas tank slushed and re-etched. All
new
suspension bushings, rebuilt front shocks and outer tie rods. New front
disks,
brake lines and rear brake hardware. All wiring and electrical repaired
or
replaced, new coil, wires, spark plugs, etc. Dashboard - perfect
condition -
not one crack! New carpet Recent top - clear window, no tears All new
exhaust
including hardware. Recently re-chromed front bumper and NOS
bumperettes. New
tires and trim rings. All new rubbers seals - door, trunk, lights,
windows
(including windshield seal). Rebuilt speedometer. New chrome trim:
headlights,
door sill, MIDGET lettering, grill surrounds, wiper bezels, etc. Plus
many,
many more miscellaneous parts replaced. Look at the pictures and see for
yourself. Best of luck. Please save this car!!

Oh yea, I also need some trim pieces, like the little chrome caps that go on
the rear of the door opening, and the door panels, and the panels that go
under the door.

Attention all club members:

I am parting out my 1973 MG Midget starting this weekend and am giving club
members first shot at the parts. Please email me for any parts requests and I

parts are sure to go quickly. Below you'll see a description of the car when
it was recently listed on ebay but didn't meet the reserve.

First the violin story. This is 1973 MG Midget that was recently restored
(always garaged since restoration) and then rear ended just days after a fresh
engine rebuild and new clutch: The car was totaled by the insurance company -
I have the Salvage title only. I did not have the heart to see it sent to a
yard and rot away since everything was right on this car. Here's a chance of a
lifetime to get all the restoration parts in one shot - I used NOS whenever
possible and have all receipts to prove it. I have over $10,000 invested into
this car. The car is driveable, but the unibody is bent slightly on the trunk
floor and buckled behind the trunk - thus I must sell it as a parts car. The
good news is that the rest of the car appears untouched. Here's a PARTIAL list
of what has been done to the Midget in the past year: Passed PA inspection
just a couple of months ago and is still current. Newly rebuilt engine and
three-piece clutch - engine has 70+ lbs of pressure when starting and was
driven for hours without a problem (remember it was JUST rebuilt - so I
haven't driven it for more than a weekend with the fresh rebuild). The engine
never smoked, overheated or had serious problems even before the rebuild.
Transmission is in excellent condition. New front Fenders, Hood, quarter
panel, fan shroud - any rust (though minor) repaired correctly - underside of
car was fine before restoration and did not need any repair. Rebuilt SU
carburetors and new SU fuel pump. Gas tank slushed and re-etched. All new
suspension bushings, rebuilt front shocks and outer tie rods. New front disks,
brake lines and rear brake hardware. All wiring and electrical repaired or
replaced, new coil, wires, spark plugs, etc. Dashboard - perfect condition -
not one crack! New carpet Recent top - clear window, no tears All new exhaust
including hardware. Recently re-chromed front bumper and NOS bumperettes. New
tires and trim rings. All new rubbers seals - door, trunk, lights, windows
(including windshield seal). Rebuilt speedometer. New chrome trim: headlights,
door sill, MIDGET lettering, grill surrounds, wiper bezels, etc. Plus many,
many more miscellaneous parts replaced. Look at the pictures and see for
yourself. Best of luck. Please save this car!!

Joe,

What a horrible way for a nice car to die. Can I forward this to the
Spridget list? Probably get a lot of takers there.

I need new front wings, at some point, but those won't fit :-(

Larry

PS what was the reserve? If you don't mind telling.

Allen,
I realized that I had made that critical error when I read your E-mail about the rally - the day after I took the newsletter to the printers. Oh well!! I'll correct it in the Sept. newsletter. Take care, Steve

I just got my July/August newsletter. (Thanks Steve.) A small correction.
Steve re-printed an e-mail from me in the "British Recognition" section that
wasn't completely accurate. The rally that he mentioned, as reported by Mark
Johnson, was not my rally. That rally started in Tamaqua, PA and was put on
by Kevin Valentine, who is an e-mail lister from the Spridgets list. (I
don't know if Kevin is a member of any organized club.) Kevin's rally was a
hoot! We all had fun running it, and the day and the roads were beautiful.

My rally (An SCCA Philadelphia Region event) was held on Saturday, July 28th.
It started at King of Prussia Plaza and ended at the Mid Atlantic Air Museum
in Reading, taking Mount Penn and the Pagoda in as well. We had a light
turnout of only 10 cars, but there was a 1969 MGB competing, owned by Charles
Kitchen of Springfield, PA. Charles told me he bought his B when it was new,
and his son would only accompany him on the rally if he let him drive!

Thanks again for the newsletter, Steve. I just wanted to get the facts
straight.

There was certainly no harm done.  The main thing is to get the word out that
there are rallies going on that everybody can enter and enjoy.  The group
that went on the Tamaqua LBC rally had so much fun, we are all still
laughing.  Especially at Reg for trying to pass off an ear of corn as every
item on the scavenger hunt!  (How about as a toothbrush?!?)

I do have a few local rally routes in my computer, along with general
instructions.  If anyone wants to put together a Philly MG Club rally, I can
supply a lot of help.  As Philly SCCA Rally Steward, I don't have a lot of
time to do all the work, but I can really get you started.  Just give me a
holler!
